Whether you’re dealing with a commercial office, a retail building or residential complex, maintaining an appealing exterior should always be a priority. Not only does a beautifully landscaped yard give off a positive impression of your business, it will attract and retain customers, tenants, and visitors. We’ve put together a list of commercial landscaping benefits:
Improve Property Perception
Landscaping an overgrown, bland or empty outdoor space can truly transform a building’s place in the community. A well presented and maintained exterior contribute to a safe and friendly community environment. Simply adding trees, plants, turf or new bricks and paving can really revamp a commercial space, and invite a more positive perception. With the use of things such as landscape lighting, professional maintenance and pruning, and a well-planned landscape design, your commercial space will stand out from your competitors, appeal to your customers and contribute to the feel of your community.
Draw People In
A well designed commercial landscape helps to create a positive aesthetic environment which naturally attracts and welcomes visitors. Stores with beautifully lanscaped areas can draw in shoppers, residential complexes with well presented gardens will attract buyers/renters/leasers and businesses with a well kept exterior appear more organised and professional. Adding ornamental plants, trees, turf and paving can revitalize a stale business, help it to stand out amoungst its competitors, improve its overall environment and ultimately bring in more clients. Greenery, colour, functionality and light are all components of an inviting outdoor space which will make your clients, customers and employees happy.
Positive Place for Employees
Improving your commercial landscaping can help you create a more appealing and welcoming environment for your staff. When the effort is made to maintain your commercial landscape, it gives you an easy way to make your employees feel more excited about coming to work in the morning. A beautiful landscape design gives your staff a motivating and positive place to come every morning, and also a nice place to go when they are on break.
Reviving your commercial landscape provides a great opportunity to ‘go green’. There are so many ways that you can make your landscape more environmentally friendly, no only helping the earth, but also as something that will save you money in the long run. Things such as irrigation improvements, using native plants and shrubbery, composting, recycling and adding green walls. These sustainability initiatives can save you money. For instance, smarter irrigation systems save water and watering costs, Green walls/roofs can moderate a building’s temperature and lowers energy costs, native plants will usually require less maintenance and therefore less upkeep cost. And with all of this, you’re while adding to the aesthetic appeal of a building and improving business perception.
Invest in Improvements
It doesn’t matter how nice a building is, if the landscape is neglected, run down and in need of serious improvement, the focus will not be on the building but on the property as a whole. People are much more inclined to live, work and shop in an area that is presentable, appealing and safe. Introducing regular landscape improvements into your general property maintenance will truly make your commercial property more attractive and more competitive.
